Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 624523
2 extra columns of pixels on HD 5850
Last modified: 2011-02-22 16:42:30 EST
Description of problem:
For unknown reasons I see 2 extra columns of red (or magenta?) colored pixels on the left border of the screen. According to my display's OSD the resolution I get over HDMI is 1922x1200 (instead of 1920x1200). My display really doesn't like that and Fedora is not usable like this (first I get a permanent OSD with a message about a unusable resolution and later the display will go to sleep).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- I saw this in Fedora 13 with the latest updates some days ago - can't tell the version number anymore
- I see this in Fedora 14 Alpha RC4 (i.e. in 596985#c87 I don't see a totally blank screen but a blank screen with the 2 extra rows of red pixels on the left)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Fedora 13 or boot Fedora 14 RC4 install DVD and wait until Xorg fires up
1922x1200 with a vertical red beam
1920x1200 with only as much red pixels as necessary :)
Ah, I was just told that it'd be better to actually report this against F13 :)
Problems still exists in Fedora 14 Final TC1.1
Can't reproduce this problem with F15 Alpha TC1/TC2/RC1. Yay!
